All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface IPresentationDamager
A presentation damager is a strategy used by a presentation reconciler to
determine the region of the document's presentation which must be rebuilt
because of a document change. A presentation damager is assumed to be
specific for a particular document content type. A presentation damager is
expected to return a damage region which is a valid input for a presentation
repairer. I.e. having access to the damage region only the repairer must be
able to derive all the information needed to successfully repair this region.
This interface must either be implemented by clients or clients use the
rule-based default implementation
should be registered with a presentation reconciler in order get involved in
the reconciling process.
- Tells the presentation damager on which document it will work.
document - the damager's working document
- Returns the damage in the document's presentation caused by the given document change.
The damage is restricted to the specified partition for which the presentation damager is
responsible. The damage may also depend on whether the document change also caused changes
of the document's partitioning.
partition - the partition inside which the damage must be determined
event - the event describing the change whose damage must be determined
documentPartitioningChanged - indicates whether the given change changed the document's partitioning
- the computed damage
